It is full-bodied with loads of fruit and as of now the telltale minerality has not yet penetrated the lavish fruit notes.-Robert Parker

Salted butter, warm brioche, chamomile and creamed Jonagold apple notes glide together seamlessly in this version, backed by a creamy, pure, stone-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019. – JM

Ripe peach, tangerine and honeydew aromas are complicated by notes of anise and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with spice-accented orchard and pit fruit flavors that are given spine and cut by tangy acidity. Dense yet lithe white Saint-Joseph with excellent finishing clarity and smoky, spicy persistence.

Pale honey colour. Honeysuckle nose. Pretty low acid makes it taste a little sweet but gloriously beguiling. Not that intense but very flattering with just a hint of bitter quinine quality on the end. Fun. 17/20
